Packet Capture using EMX


Does anyone know if it is possible to configure an EMX (or Chipworks) to promiscuously capture all network traffic being received on its network interface? I understand this will be limited by the processing bandwidth of the EMX.



You need raw traffic and do not care for TCP/IP stack? Then maybe hook into the mac layer using RLP to read all incoming traffic.


yes I would need RAW traffic.

I was hoping it could be done without RLP.
I guess I will be rethinking the requirements of this device or will be spending some quality time with the CPU and low level code.


Another very easy option…connect ENC28J60 over SPI and read raw packets. You can actually connect multiple and then monitor multi-channels :slight_smile:

If there is a will, there is a way :slight_smile:


thank you
that looks like it should work and having multiple channels is a plus.

thanks again
